Alison Mosshart: Artist Extraordinaire

Rock star. Fashion Icon. Muse. And now, painter too.  Is there anything Alison Mosshart cannot do?  I don't think so.  Alison Mosshart oozes talent out of her pores.

I am not surprised to hear that her paintings were recently on exhibit in NYC, in the Chelsea District.  Alison Mosshart, along with 20 other female artists, were on exhibit at ArtNowNY as part of the "Push It" exhibit to showcase female talent.  The exhibit ended just four days ago on the 26th.  Although I am late to find out about this and to share the info, she plans a solo exhibit in her hometown of Nashville, TN later this year.  You might have a chance to check out her art then.

Alison Mosshart uses mixed media (acrylic, pencil and ink) on canvas, paper and fabric.

Alison Mosshart is part of the duo (along with Jamie Hince) behind blues-punk band The Kills, one of my current favorite bands.  I had the pleasure of seeing them live in February 2012 during their 10-year anniversary tour.  She has more recently been collaborating with Jack White with the band The Dead Weather.

Here is one of my favorite songs/videos from The Kills, "Black Balloon."
